The incident took place around two months back, police said.
    
"Information is that one lady hailing from Hyderabad city, who has been staying in Qatar for the past 10 years happened to get influenced by another lady residing in her apartment. So both of them went till Turkey, where she changed her mind and she came back to India," Hyderabad Police Commissioner M Mahender Reddy told reporters here.
    
Asked if the woman had been counselled by the City Police, he said, "The incident happened around two months ago. We have not brought her (back to India) she came back on her own," Reddy said.
    
Another police officer attached to Intelligence Wing said, "The 19-year-old woman stayed in Qatar. Her parents are natives of Hyderabad. She could not go there (Iraq). She contacted her parents and came back to the city."
    
Asked if she had planned to join the ISIS ranks, the senior police officer said, "It was only due to influence of one lady she initially wanted go there, but went up to Turkey only and came back...Initially it seems she allegedly had plans, but after seeing the conditions there she decided to come back."
    
Reacting to media reports that claimed one lady from Hyderabad had proceeded to join the ISIS ranks and had got trained from the terror group, the Hyderabad Police chief said "We don't have any such information. It is not a fact that she joined ISIS and got training."
    
Last year, Hyderabad Police had foiled "attempts" by six youths from Hyderabad including a former Google employee, who were allegedly plotting to join the Islamic State (ISIS) ranks after getting attracted to ISIS propaganda on social networking sites.
